About This Event


We are excited to announce our yearly event for Sexual Assault Awareness Month!

Join us for PowerWalk! Show up to protest victim blaming and slut shaming and to stand with survivors of sexual assault. PowerWalk will begin with a sidewalk march and end at Best Of Luck Beer Hall where we will hear from Me Too Springfield president Jordan Harris, view the "What Were You Wearing?" art exhibit, and spend time with local survivors and supporters.

Wear absolutely whatever you want!

PowerWalk is a reclamation of the streets. PowerWalk demands that all bodies are worthy of respect. No person deserves to be sexually assaulted, harassed, or afraid to walk down the street. We demand an end to victim-blaming and rape culture. We are prepared to provide the necessary tools to bring positive change to our community.

With PowerWalk, we declare a radical, unapologetic self-love. Through recognition of differences, we will come together and stand in solidarity with one another. Our race, class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, sexual history, or clothes do not make us blameworthy.
